PROVO, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) -A judge has rejected Martin MacNeill's request for a new murder trial.

This clears the way for MacNeill to finally be sentenced on murder charges.

The judge says the defense's arguments for a new trial had no merit.

He wants both sides in court next week to set a sentencing date.

A jury convicted Martin MacNeill of killing his wife Michelle last November.
